IDEAS #104: Turntable features and revenues

Categories
Ideas
Following up from my ‘The New Early-Adoptor Addiction: Turntable‘ post on TechCrunch, these are some brainstormed revenue ideas for Turntable, and more. What do you want to see from them?
Virtual goods for points: (obviously they could sell points packages too)
  • Access to unreleased songs and exclusive remixes
  • More user avatars
  • Stickers for your laptop
  • Laptop skins (maybe with upsell to buy the real one)
  • Real turntables
  • Filter effects on songs as if you remixed it a little (bass effect, treble effect, etc)
  • Laser light show
  • Dry ice
  • Glow sticks if in the crowd
  • Lighter if in the crowd
  • Chains for your neck
  • Ability to drop your own nickname audio over a beat like DJ Clue (“DJ PoPo”) or other predefined clips (“bounce!”, “get up!”, “how’s everyone doing?”)
  • Other accessories for your room (poles, cages)
  • Different room themes (bar, club, country bar, dive bar)
  • Different wallpaper for the room
  • Hats for avatars (NewEra sponsored?)
  • Eggs to throw at the DJ
  • Blow kisses at the DJ
  • Sponsored rooms by Bacardi (thx Scott Sage)
  • UGC if integrated with SoundCloud (thx Scott Sage)
  • Projector that displays music videos of the songs playing
  • Any other ways of personalizing the experience

Other ideas:

  • I wish if were to boot someone off the stage, you could do it in the style of the 2min mark of Guy Ritchie’s video for ‘Smack My Bitch Up’ by Prodigy: http://vimeo.com/8714164
  • Charts: Similar artists; popular tracks by this artist
  • Once an iPhone app exists, I see parties with my friends revolving around a few of us sharing the DJing responsibilities. A monitor or TV could display full-screen the song title and artist, along with the DJ name/avatar.

What are your ideas?
